Algorithms to optimally locate and design dampers for large space structures were developed. The requirements for distributed sensing and actuation in control of structural systems were determined. Mathematical programming was used to solve for optimum damping rate and location. Actuator dynamics were considered to solve for optimum actuator mass.
